1. Stolen School Bus Batteries
Case 14482141 

The Calgary Police Service is investigating the theft of hundreds of batteries from a northeast bus yard.

Sometime between 2 p.m., on Sunday, Dec. 7, and 5:30 a.m., on Monday, Dec. 8, 2014, 237 batteries were stolen from 79 school busses (three per bus) at a private yard located at 8220 48 Ave. N.E. In total, the theft is estimated at $20,000.

The batteries were located in an external compartment on the exterior of the bus. In each case, the wires from the batteries were cut and the devices removed.

Unfortunately, no closed-circuit video is available, and the yard was left unlocked during the evening in question due to a late-night charter. Bus batteries are much larger than a typical car battery, therefore, a large vehicle, possibly a cube van, may have been used to transport the stolen items.

Investigators are asking anyone who may have seen suspicious activity in or near the bus yard during the time in question, to call police at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:

7. Police Issue Warning on Grandparent Scam


The Calgary Police Service is warning citizens about a scam that has appeared to have escalated in the past few months.

During 2014, police have become aware of 86 cases relating to what is often referred to as the Grandparent Scam.

In each case, con artists have been contacting potential victims over the phone, posing as a family member or friend in urgent need of cash.

Often the scenario involves an accident or arrest while travelling, with a request that cash be sent through a money transfer company, such as Western Union or Money Gram or by purchasing prepaid credit or gift cards.

Better Business Bureau Serving Southern Alberta and East Kootenay President and CEO, Sandra Crozier-McKee says, “Typically we’ve seen scammers asking for wire transfers, but now we’re starting to see scammers getting people to purchase grocery gift cards as a way of obtaining personal financial information. This is a new twist on an old scam that we want people to be aware of.”

In the typical scenario, a grandparent receives a phone call from a con artist claiming to be one of his or her grandchildren.The caller goes on to say they are in some kind of trouble – such as being in a car accident, needing bail money or money to cover vehicle damages. The emphasis is on needing money and immediately.

In the majority of cases, a second suspect makes a follow-up call to the victim claiming to be a lawyer representing their relative and provides the details of how the transaction should be made.

Victims are convinced by the callers, and rushed into sending money because of an “emergency” only to find out afterwards they had been defrauded.

The caller specifically asks that their request be kept secret from other relatives, as they are embarrassed for calling, and do not want anyone else to know what has happened.

Between August and November of this year, there have been a total of 45 cases amounting to approximately $74,000 being stolen. Fortunately in many cases the money transfers were cancelled, otherwise this number would have been much larger.

However, in one case alone, the suspects were successful in conning someone out of nearly $15,000.

Variations of this scam do exist, such as someone posing as an old neighbor or a friend of the family. Predominantly, however, the emergency scam is directed towards grandparents.

Anyone with information about this investigation is asked to call police at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:

TALK: 1-800-222-8477
TYPE: www.calgarycrimestoppers.org
TEXT: tttTIPS to 274637

The Calgary Police Service suggests the following crime prevention tips:
·    Do not feel pressure to respond to a request until you have a chance to verify the story.
·    Never transfer money, or give out credit card or other financial information, until you can verify the person’s identity and the story, and determine whether it is legitimate.
·    Ask the caller questions that only your family member would know the answer to.
·    Ask for call back numbers in order to confirm the legitimacy of any call you receive.
·    When it doubt, check it out. Verify the story with other friends or family members.
·    Immediately report suspicious people to police.

3. Homicide Investigation Update
Case #14388809

The Calgary Police Service continues to investigate a homicide that occurred in October, and believe that another shooting reported at a nearby home, at the same time, was a stray bullet.

On Saturday, Oct. 4, 2014, at approximately 9:50 a.m., emergency personnel responded to reports of a man shot in the 300 block of Manora Crescent N.E.

Upon arrival, first responders located the man and transported him to a local hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.

It is believed the man had left his residence and was in the back alley when he was shot.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner identified the victim as Jason Quinn ANTONIO, 39, of Calgary.

Several minutes after the homicide occurred, it was reported that shots were fired at a home on Maidstone Crescent N.E.

Investigators found a bullet that had entered one home on the street.

The investigation has since determined that the firearm round which impacted the residence was not from a drive-by shooting. Although forensics and ballistics analysis and testing are still ongoing, investigators are confident that the bullet was a stray round, potentially from the homicide scene, and not a targeted incident.

There are no further updates on the homicide investigation; however, investigators continue to seek public assistance from anyone who may have information. They are asked to call police at 403-266-1234, or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
